Sharp Eye is a San Diego-based shaper founded by Marcio Zouvi in 1992. Zouvi moved to San Diego from Brazil in the 80's and started shaping boards when he found that new boards were expensive and out of his reach. His vision was to have a surfboard company with a friendly, open style who listens to the surfers and makes their satisfaction the priority. That vision has become reality. Over 30,000 boards later, he continues to hold those values high for his store and his product.
Sharp Eye works with the best suppliers, uses top materials and constantly updates and upgrades construction methods ensuring their surfers are riding the latest technology. Riders meet one-on-one with the shapers and receive fully customized surfboards perfect for them. Listening to ongoing feedback from riders keeps Sharp Eye at the top of their game. Their commitment to quality and drive to create the best board for each surfer has helped Sharp Eye assemble an impressive team of riders.
The team of thirteen is made up of the likes of Felipe Toledo of Holy Toledo model fame. Toledo was fourth overall in the WCT in 2015 and is the newly crowned First Place Winner of the US Open of Surfing from July 2016. Up-and-comer Jake Marshall, second in The Junior US Open and winner of the NSSA Open Men's Title and 2016 AI Standout Nationals Performance award, is one of the newer members of the team. Most recent add, Tommy Coleman, was the winner of the NSSA National Explorer Boys title and he too rides boards from Sharp Eye.
Sharp Eye Boards are proudly made in the USA by craftsmen with over a hundred combined years of experience in the industry. Their commitment to customer service and quality is unsurpassed in the industry. Look for models like the popular Disco, a high performance, small wave board or the OK, a short board preferred by many riders as their go-to model and of course, the Holy Toledo. With no limit to the level of customization Sharp Eye can give you, you are sure to find a board that is perfect for your ride too!
